The natural evolution of media
The Macrocosm, the Microcosm. As Above, So Below.
Hypnos brings the fractal intelligence of nature into our personal worlds.
Nature has been removed from our lives in our high-tech worlds. Yet, plant essences and terpenes present in forest atmospheres have been clinically verified to have positive health benefits and are the inspiration behind Hypnos's Bio-Media Technology.
Hypnos brings the power of nature into our lives through the media we use.
Hypnos's Green-tech mood-uplifting Bio-Media Technology is used for many applications - medical, spa therapies, telepresence, productivity enhancement, virtual nature, and entertainment.
When used within the Scentscape™ system, Bio-Media is experienced as a bio-aromatic “Scent track” that is continually changing like a cinematic musical score; it’s a totally unique experience allowing us to experience media like never before - delivering bio-aromatic immersive experiences that transform streaming, shared, and live events across all media channels, including AR & VR - and of course, the Metaverse.
Bio-Media even "pulls us into the media itself" through mood uplifting neuroscience-verified bio-chemistry, such as forest terpenes, that communicate with the brain for speed-of-light cognitive shifts in perception.
Bio-Media works with all media and all devices

High concentrations of plant essences and terpenes present in forest atmospheres have been clinically verified to have positive health benefits and are the inspiration behind Hypnos's Green-tech mood-uplifting Bio-Media Technology. Bio-Media is "digitally harnessed nature", and it accomplishes its fascinating neurological influence on the brain by employing neuroscience-verified natural essences “farmed from Earth" and atomizes them into a "living" media-synced bio-aromatic airstream, mixed on-the-fly with quarter-second precision.
Bio-media is "digital nature"
Bio-Media is Green Media
Hypnos’s Bio-Media is the first and only Green Media in existence. Since Bio-Media is made of plant chemistry and "Farmed from Earth", using Bio-Media reduces the Earth’s carbon footprint and increases atmospheric Oxygen. The more the media is used, the more plants, crops, and forests are planted, the more Carbon is pulled from the atmosphere, and the more Oxygen is created.

The Hypnos's Bio-Media Scentrac™ is experienced as a choreographed "scent track"that is continually changing like a cinematic musical score. It can be Media-Synced with TV, movies, music, VR, AR- or no other media at all. The Scentrac has quarter-second precision technology, and contains the "practical aromatic genome" with millions of aromatic combinations (when experienced with the Scentscape Cinema model. Smaller sized units available and customizable).
Pictured below: There are three main genres of the Scentscape Bio-Media airstream: Ambient, Extra-Diegetic, and Neurolimbic. Each type offers specific functionality, taking the Scentscape™ technology far beyond any "Smell-o-Vision" concept.
Ambient Scentracs (shown on left in the chart above) are what most people think of when thinking of a "Scent Track", but this is only a part of the Scentscape™ technology. In addition to Scentscape's millions-of-aroma-combinations, Scentscape's neuroscience-based organic chemistry has also developed into a new Art Form that goes far beyond "smell" alone.
Extra-Diegetic Scentrac (middle in chart) is a completely new concept that is best explained in comparison to a movie soundtrack with a musical score. Characters in movies do not "hear" the Extra-Diegetic musical score. Examples are the famous soundtrack from "Jaws", or the inspirational music in "Rocky", or the many musical scores created by John Williams and Hans Zimmer that all play a powerful and critical role in stirring viewers emotions - so we feel the way the director and producers want us to feel (and thus enjoy the movie). Horror movies employ obvious Extra-Diegetic emotional stirring to scare or create tension, often "making or breaking" a movie. Similarly, Hypnos Virtual has developed an Extra-Diegetic Scentrac Artform that stirs and moves viewers' emotions in the desired ways the scent-director (or Scent Poet) wants, often with even more power and influence on the viewer than the musical score.
Neurolimbic Scentracs (on right in chart) are primarily based on Neuroscience data from EEG brain scans. Because these work neurologically through the olfactory system in the upper nose, this is a powerful "speed-of-light cognitive influencer." This influencer is also employed in the Extra-Diegetic and Ambient Scentracs to seamlessly stir and uplift users' emotions. This is explained in the chart above through the use of side arrows.
